Obey the law! It is what holds us together. That is what I do, and the example that I lead with. There are occasions when the law is an ass, and it is important for children to not be influenced by our take on that. Not obeying a law is a very personal issue. Nothing we should do should bend a child's mind to a parent's view. They deserve to be able to make their own minds up. Having said that....
